When it comes to collecting treats, this eight-legged spider tote is great for holding onto your child's catch.

What you'll need

  • Scissors
  • Black poster board or heavy construction paper
  • Tacky glue
  • Glitter
  • Small black plastic plate
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Two 1-inch black pom-poms
  • ½-inch red pom-pom
  • Black gift bag

How to make it

  1. Candy Catcher - Step 1

    Start with eight long, tapered legs cut from the black poster board or construction paper. (The legs should be a couple of inches longer than your gift bag. Our spider's legs are 12 inches long for our 10-inch-tall bag.) Outline the edges of each leg with tacky glue, then sprinkle on some glitter (or use glitter glue) and let them dry.

  2. Transform the bottom of the plastic plate into the spider's face with a glue and glitter mouth, eyebrows, and outline, as shown. Glue on the googly eyes and black pom-poms for eyeballs and a red pom-pom nose. Let dry.

  3. Attach two legs to each side of the bag, curving the tops over, then glue the face onto the front. When the glue has dried completely, your spider is ready for a night on the town.
